You Gotta Try These!
I attended a media tour organized by Chinesebites.com where I sampled food and beverage vendors of my choosing at the Summer Night Market. Here are some of my top foodie experiences from the International Night Market:
Twist Potatoes with choice of sauce
As one of the first food stalls that introduced hurricane fries to Metro Vancouver, J&J The Original Potato Fries has expanded its menu. Patrons can now choose a wide selection of spices and sauces to go with their order of crispy potato, zucchini, or yam fries.
Deep fried Mars bars
Turkish Chicken Tantuni
Local foodies can experience one of Turkey’s top ten street foods without travelling aboard. At Tantuni Authentic Turkish Cuisine, patrons can order a classic tantuni with stir-fried beef, pepper, and tomato wrapped in a thin tortilla and topped with aromatic dry spices.
A little bit sweet and savoury, these ball-shaped Japanese snack filled with minced octopus and tempura scraps will blow your mind.
Lamb Skewers on the Grill
The enticing barbecue smell coming from Xinjing A fan Ti Halal BBQ can make your mouth water instantly. Marinated in a special mixture of cumin, Sichuan pepper and various spices, the lamb skewers are juicy, tender and flavourful. For patrons who are looking for an alternative to lamb, barbecue chicken skewers and chicken wings are also available.
Fish-shaped Korean Waffle with Red Bean Paste Filling
